Portraits of the World: Korea @ National Portrait Gallery
May 22 all-day

Pioneering feminist artist Yun Suknam (born 1939) uses portraiture to gain insights into the lives of women, past and present. A wood assemblage portrait of her mother is the centerpiece of this exhibition, which includes portraits of American artists, such as Louise Bourgeois, Louise Nevelson, Marisol, Kiki Smith and Nancy Spero. This presentation focuses on shared themes and artistic approaches that have activated women artists from different parts of the globe. Robyn Asleson, the National Portrait Gallery’s associate curator of prints, drawings and media arts, is the curator of this exhibition. “Portraits of the World: Korea” is the second exhibition in a series dedicated to highlighting the global context of American portraiture and follows the series’ inaugural focus on Switzerland.

May 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

The Way We Wear

Contemporary wearables from School of Art & Design
Australian National University

Featured artists: Dean Cross, Jacqueline Bradley, Larah Nott, Phoebe Porter, Rebecca Mayo, Sian Watson, Boya Yu, & The Uniform Project: Alison Alder, Megan Hinton, Dan Edwards. Curated by Dr Charlotte Galloway, Acting Director, Centre for Art History and Art Theory, ANU School of Art & Design.

The Way We Wear showcases the work of current staff and alumni of the ANU School of Art & Design. The works in this exhibition display clothing and fashion as object and artefact, extending ideas of the wearable into explorations of our preconceived notions of clothing and its function.

These works reflect two of the School of Art & Design’s research clusters: Nature & Culture and Activism & Social Engagement. The selected works address ideas of wearable art through a variety of mediums from across the School’s eleven disciplines – with many artists taking an interdisciplinary approach. The selected artists are working in fields that draw on the power of clothing and accessories as universally recognisable items, to engage the viewer with contemporary issues of personal and global importance.

This exhibition is possible through collaboration between ANU School of Art & Design, the Embassy of Australia in Washington DC, the ANU North American Liaison Office, and the ANU Research School of Humanities & the Arts.
